***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Why is it so hard to find a .355 single bend shaft?

Seriously...it shouldn’t be this difficult to find a replacement option for .355 single bend mallet putter shafts.<br />
<br />
Does anybody know where I can find some? <br />
<br />
Thanks,<br />

    I've never heard of that. What putter requires a taper tip single bend?

    Pretty much all Scotty Cameron mallets are .355 tip single or double bend shafts. The newer Selects are single bends.<br />

    Getting a hold of .355 single bends is about as difficult as catching a **** in the wind.

    I’ve got one from an X5 in my basement that I yanked when I made it a flow neck. It played 34” I think.<br />

    Pm me if that’s what you need.

    Chip Usher has them in his eBay store from time to time. But I agree, way too hard to find.

    Even the one Chip has listed are .355 double bend...not single. I was looking for a specific shaft for a JAT I had refinished and sent Chip a message through his eBay store, he was able to find one for me even though he didn't have it listed. Might be worth a shot to see if he's got any. His name on there is Chipaputt if you need it.

    Recently made my own ....not quite the same as the .355" preprioritory Scotty shafts ,
    that have parallel tip section of .355" about 3" long....but I was able to make a ,355 tip,
    single bend shaft using an old Rifle Precision stepless wedge shaft...this is the how...

    Found some brass beads with an OD of 19/64" and strung them on a wire leader made
    for fishing . This was to make a mandrel to keep the shaft from collapsing during bending.
    Made a bending jig with peg board , pegs , and thread spools. Then with a MAP gas torch,
    heated and bent the shaft to match the bend in the shaft I was replacing. Removed mandrel. The heating left some discoloration, so for cosmetic reasons I used heat shrink
    tube , to complete my homemade .355" tip , single bend , black shaft ......

    For anyone looking, I have two of these shafts available. Both have Matador grips. One is for a counter balance X5 and the other one is a 34" finished length for an X5. Both single bend, both .355. DM me if interested.

    Thanks,

    Rod
